When the time comes to build, it’s all about having the right tool for the job. Luckily in LEGO Worlds, gamers have an arsenal of them to choose from. The Discovery Tool is the first one kids will unlock when they begin the game. It allows them to replicate characters, creatures, and other objects that they find during their travels. They can take aim and carefully spawn copies, or fire them into the sky with wild abandonment. I prefer the latter.
With the Landscape Tool, kids can add, remove, and reshape terrain. Once the ground is leveled to their liking, the Build Tool can be used to create something from scratch. Kids can search through a library of unlimited bricks, plates, tiles, slopes, fixtures, and fittings to make their dreams a reality. They can even put the Free Build tool to use by collapsing all of their tools and Discovery items into one easily accessible menu bar, and complete the look of their creation by recoloring the bricks with the Paint Tool.In many ways, LEGO Worlds is just like any free-world game. There are ordinary features and functions like using the controller’s sticks to move, the “X” button to jump, and in-game vehicles that aid in the journey. Then, there are more quirky aspects of the game, like using a banana as a weapon. Bonk! Wham! Potassium!But some things are just more fun with friends, and I’m happy to say that has been addressed in LEGO Worlds. Friends can explore other kids’ worlds online or via split screen, where both participants get a full set of tools with which to design. There’s even an online multiplayer feature that lets LEGO lovers allow anyone from their friends list to seamlessly join. It’s a classic case of the more the merrier.
LEGO Worlds is creative fun for all ages, and is available in North America for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and STEAM. The game will launch on the Nintendo Switch later this year.
